New Housing Plan From Province

Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 07:35 AM

The provincial government is introducing a plan to help streamline the approval process for new housing developments.

The 14-point action plan includes recommendations to better align infrastructure and land use planning, and provide additional guidance to municipalities implementing provincial land use policies.

It also proposes creating a task force to look at the use of electronic permitting.

The plan comes out of a Development Approvals Roundtable that includes representatives from the development, construction and real estate sectors, and provincial and municipal governments.
